Worried about marathon, FPF meets with athletes and receives support – 03/04/2021

The São Paulo Football Federation (FPF) held a meeting with the leaders of the teams of the first division of the State to raise awareness of the marathon that lies ahead. With the restrictions imposed by the pandemic and the CBF’s warning that the Brasileirão will not be postponed, the organization already foresees games every two days and wanted to let the athletes warned.

The virtual meeting was organized by Mauro Silva, former FPF player and vice, and featured names like Weverton and Felipe Melo, from Palmeiras, Fábio Santos and Cássio, from Corinthians, and Léo, from São Paulo. Previously, the entity had already met with officials.

At the meeting, all athletes expressed support for the organization and said they understood the consequences of the ban on games held in the State due to the covid-19 pandemic.

During the meeting, some athletes even stated that they prefer to play matches in São Paulo, avoiding trips to other cities that do not have the same rigidity in sanitary measures.

Palmeiras, with the Recopa Sul-Americana and Supercopa do Brasil, and Santos, with the pre-Libertadores, are the ones that should have the worst streak, with matches on Tuesday, Thursday and weekend.

The expectation is that the Government and the Public Prosecutor’s Office will respond to the FPF proposal and allow games next week. For now, the authorities are silent.

The CBF has already warned all the federations that it will not change the start of the Brasileirão, scheduled for May 30th, which obliges all States to be played until the 23rd of the same month, a weekend before the debut.
